Subject:Publications in Resume From:Kathryn J Acciari <acciari -at- ACSU -dot- BUFFALO -dot- EDU> Date:Mon, 23 Mar 1998 09:04:51 -0500
I am updating my resume, and need to update my list of publications as
well. I am trying to decide just what to include in this list and would
appreciate your feedback. Right now, the list contains magazine and
journal articles, but I would like to include abstracts from exhibits that
I have done (the abstract were published in journals), and am thinking
about including the titles of user manuals to which I was a contributing
writer, along with the titles of on-line Help systems I have developed.
My main problem is that I need to refresh my memory
on the standard format for listing publications. (For example, would
manual titles be underlined? Should I list everything in chronological
order, or by type of publication? Should I include presentations, even if
a paper version was not published?) I have a lot to add to my current
list and want to present it in a consistent, clear format.
Does anyone know of a good resource where I might find this information,
or have a sample that you would be willing to share? My resume
resources have nothing but short paragraphs on the inclusion of
publications in the resume.
Thanks in advance for your help.
